Relaxation Videos Help Recover Sport Injuries

Why Relaxation Videos are Essential to Help You Recover from a Sports Injury, Mind, Body and Spirit

Using 4K Relaxing Videos and Other Techniques to Cure Insomnia

According to the Centres of Disease for Disease Control and Prevention, in the USA more than 25% of American’s suffer from insomnia. Perhaps, more telling, 2017 research by the German Neuroscience Centre discovered that one in three people in Dubai suffers from one sleep disorder or another.

What’s clear is that insomnia is a malady that plagues many people in Dubai. Standard medical advice says that sticking to a regular bedtime routine is one of the best ways to cure insomnia, but who goes to bed at the same time every single night?

But, for those tired of not sleeping, lying awake night after night staring at the bedroom ceiling, there is hope. 4K relaxing videos are a great way to quash insomnia once and for all. But, what else can you do to make sure swift and deep slumber?

Nature Videos Can Help You Feel Happy, Creative, Energised and More Alive

It may seem perplexing to some, but in the twenty-first century more people than ever before spend much of their lives indoors. Whether this is due to the rise of the internet age, or a global aversion to bracing extreme weather is open to debate, but what cannot be argued is that if given the choice, most of us will stay sheltered in our homes.

Yet, despite this, being at one with nature is proven to have many psychological benefits. Scientists have long believed that nature affects everyone’s moods, making them feel more grounded and peaceful.

According to researcher David Strayer, of the University of Utah, being at one with nature increases our emotional health. This has been observed through changes in our body and brain chemistry.

Here are just some of the positive effects that nature has on our psychological well-being and why observing nature videos for a short period can rejuvenate and restore the soul.

Resurrecting the Forgotten Art of Screensavers: Create a Work of Art on Your Computer with a 4K HD Aquarium Screensaver

We all remember late 90s Windows screensavers. Sitting atop a dark background was the Windows logo clunkily bounding from one corner of the screen to another. What about the endless series of three-dimensional, multi-coloured pipes that manifested within the screen, seemingly on a journey to nowhere? We’re sure most-everyone remembers that.

As indicative as these screensavers are of the Windows 95 operating system, their aesthetics left a lot to be desired. Hardly immersing you with their design, they exposed the full extent, or lack thereof, of the operating system.

Fast forward more than two decades and 4K Ultra HD screensavers prove just how far we’ve come. Today, when every PC or laptop goes to sleep, their computer can display images with detail and resolution that matches anything of the human eye. Has the forgotten art of the screensaver been resurrected? In short, yes. Read More

The Benefits of 4K Resolution: Once You Try 4K Video Downloads You’ll Be Hooked!

In an age when new technological innovations are as commonplace as the days in the week, you’d be forgiven for letting one or two pass you by. After all, the number of so-called ‘revolutionary’ new products brought to the marketplace each year is staggering.

But occasionally there’s an innovation that’s genuinely leaps and bounds ahead of what’s available, enhancing our lives and making us think, how did I ever get along without it? Ultra HD 4K videos are such an innovation. Read More

4K Relaxation Videos To Help Calm Babies and Toddlers

The sound of a baby crying is unmistakable to parents. The instant that they hear a loud whimper or abrupt wail, all parents spring into action whisk the little one into their arms soothing them gently. It’s an instinct that every parent has.

Whenever a baby cries, the message is clear – they need comfort and care from a safe and loving parent or parental figure. But, how do you calm a crying baby who seems unaffected by the gentle and reassuring touch that only a loved one can provide?

An Interesting Solution…That Really Works: Relaxation Videos by Uscenes

You may be surprised to learn that playing videos for infants has proven to be one of the most effective ways to soothe a crying baby. Parents that have tried singing a lullaby, gentle rocking to and fro, or placing a soft and warm blanket around them for comfort only for the little ones upset to persist may find that playing a calming video is just what they need.

Why Soothing Videos for Babies and Toddlers Help

There are several reasons why 4K Ultra HD relaxing videos can help sooth babies and toddlers. Picturesque nature scenery has an instant calming effect. The vivid colours and clear sounds are transfixing, especially to little ones who are fascinated by the world around them. Read More

Looking for a Way to Boost Patient Satisfaction? Add Waiting Room Videos to Your Surgery

As any doctor’s surgery will tell you, patient satisfaction is crucial. How patient’s feel about their level care is essential to any surgery’s continuing ability to help the community. But should effective patient care lie solely with the doctor? From a medical perspective, absolutely. From a general perspective, not necessarily.

How patients feel when they visit a surgery is paramount. Often, it’s the little touches that make all the difference. From talking with a kindly receptionist to the waiting room décor, there are several factors that can boost patient satisfaction – but have you considered the benefit of displaying waiting room videos?


Increase Patient Knowledge

Presenting videos with medical content to patients increases the knowledge and awareness they have of their own health. This is vital to helping patients recognise any symptoms or bolstering any advice given by a doctor.

 In addition, HD videos can give patients more information about specific medical conditions. Clearly displayed Ultra HD videos outlining the treatment for a vitamin D deficiency or the proper dietary requirements to avoid obesity will educate patients as they sit and wait for their appointment.

Not only that, waiting room videos that feature calming scenes can help to focus patients before they speak to a doctor. This is vital to helping patients accurately explain how they feel aiding effective medical treatment.


Decrease Anxiety

Educated patients are more capable of managing their health – and the less likely they are to feel anxious when recognising the first symptoms of illness.

When patients don’t understand the nature of a procedure, it’s difficult to stop the swell of nervousness. One of the most effective ways to immediately put patients at ease as they enter a surgery is to create a tranquil environment – and waiting room videos of any description can do this very effectively!

Just think how much calmer you’d feel if you sat down for your appointment and looked around the room to see a calming HD virtual aquarium. Immediately transporting you to a place of serenity, these videos are both transfixing and calming, helping patients forget their malady, if only for a moment, and focusing their minds before they speak to a doctor.

The Top 5 Ways to Relax

To enjoy a healthy and productive lifestyle we all need to rest, Sadly, this is something that most of us rarely get the opportunity to do.

The age-old excuse that we tell ourselves is that we don’t have the time to relax. There’s always something that needs to be done. From getting the kids to and from school to tidying the house, cooking, cleaning, and let’s not forget those our commitments at work. Read More

Connect with Your Inner Child by Using One of These Three Inspired Methods to Help You Relax – Including Playing Background Videos

How often do you feel weary? How often do you act on your impulses to rest your head on a pillow and snooze, if only for a few moments?

Many adults have made suppressing their fatigue and continuing to work an art form, rationalising that there’s always something to be done and that there simply isn’t enough time to rest.

As proactive as this is, it’s hardly a healthy behaviour. Listening to what your body is telling you is one of the hallmarks of a happy life. Everyone is born with the instinct to relax when needed. Children know this. They rest when they need to. As adults we tend to ignore what our body is telling us.

Sometimes to get a restful nights’ sleep, reinvigorate your mind, body and spirit and improve your physical strength, all you need to do is to take a few moments away from the hullabaloo and remember what childhood was like with one of these four things. Read More

How to Calm Down Children with Autism: What Parents Should Know

Disclaimer: we are not providing medical advice. We have researched this topic to provide useful information, but you should always consult your doctor before implementing medical advice you read online. We were alerted to the fact that our videos can help people with autism when we received the following comment:

My son has autism and normally takes up to 3/4 hours to go to sleep. 5 min tonight, and he was out like a light. A thanks can’t cover how happy and thankful I am tonight.

It’s not uncommon for children with autism to become overstimulated. Often light, sound and touch can drastically affect their mood, as can changes in routine and unexpected events. As autistic children have difficulty understanding or communicating their feelings, a sudden shift in sensory perception or experience may result in the child becoming fearful or frustrated.

How Relaxation Videos Can Help with Social Anxiety

Anyone who suffers from social anxiety (social phobia) is familiar with the clutch in their chest when faced with social situations. The urge to retreat can become so overwhelming that many with the disorder do all they can to avoid daily interaction, which vastly decreases the quality of their lives.

There are no ‘one treatment cures all’ approach to help people suffering from the debilitating effects of social anxiety, however, the medical community does agree on a few accepted treatments that promote natural anxiety relief when in social situations.

The Benefits of a Virtual Fireplace

There are few things better than cosying up beside a roaring fire when the cold winter nights draw in. There’s just something that’s so comforting about cuddling with a loved one by the fireplace, mug of hot chocolate in hand as the snow blankets the world outside.

As heartening as traditional open fireplaces can be, they’re also not without their drawbacks. From soot stains climbing the paintwork to the consistent gathering of fresh fuel such as wood and coal every day, not to mention the worry of filling your home with harmful airborne particles, suddenly open fireplaces don’t seem all that attractive.

Sleep Aid Videos for People with Insomnia

We’ve all experienced nights spent tossing and turning, waiting for sleep to come only to be left frustrated as drifting into slumber stubbornly eludes us.

It’s estimated that as many as 30-40% of people report experiencing insomnia every year, a condition that wreaks havoc on their psychological and physical well-being. In short, we all need sleep, without it we are a shadow of ourselves.

The Causes of Insomnia

There is a wealth of physical and psychological factors that contribute to insomnia. Chronic physical pain and an overactive mind are often cited as two of primary causes of insomnia.

Another acknowledged cause of insomnia are drugs such as caffeine and nicotine. Both are stimulants and designed to keep you awake – which isn’t overly helpful come bedtime. However, environmental factors also affect sleep patterns. Feeling bathed in peace and tranquillity will encourage sleep.

The Effects of Insomnia

It goes without saying that persistent insomnia can damage both long and short-term health. Medical professionals agree that there’s a direct correlation between insomnia and a wealth of health concerns.

Insomniacs have reported increased levels of anxiety and depression. Every sleep cycle is the body’s natural restorative process. Memories are collated and organised when we sleep and physical ailments cured. Without sleep, our body and mind cannot heal itself – and this can lead to persistent problems, including anxiety and depression.

4K Screensavers Can Make a World of Difference…And Here’s Why

As the old saying goes, a picture can tell a thousand words. But, what if a picture could tell you ten
thousand words? Well, it can. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you 4K screensavers.

One of the most enduring computer features of computer application in the last two decades, screensavers are as commonplace as any Microsoft operating system.

The times of being greeted by the floating Microsoft logo or the squiggly, growing pipe design after leaving our computer idle for a few moments seem relics of a bygone era. Today, screensavers have evolved to become so much more than static images or basic GIF animations – they are an essential element to how we interact with and experience computers in the modern digital age.

Whether adding a touch of creativity and beauty to a dreary office space or lifting our spirits, the vivid detail of 4K screensavers can imbue us with a sense of wonder and can even lift our spirits.

What Is 4K Resolution?

Simply put, you don’t get any better than 4K resolution. Images are sharp and colors are vivid. 4K resolution is a delight for the eyes, allowing us to explore and absorb images in the minutest detail. 4K resolution is named for the degree of horizontal resolution provided by the pixelated image.

Sometimes known as Ultra High Definition, with images consisting of approximately 4000 horizontal pixels and 2160 vertical pixels.

Dominant in the fields of digital photography and television, 4K resolution offers the sharpest images possible by current digital technology.

Screensavers with 4K resolution can completely transport us to a place about as far away from our
desks or laps as possible. One moment you could be sitting at your desk, worrying how you’ll ever
make that looming deadline, the next you could feel in harmony with the natural splendor of an
aquarium and its picturesque beauty.

Aquarium Screensavers and 4K Technology

It’s long been known that pleasant scenery promotes a positive frame of mind. This positivity is
integral to enjoying a prosperous working and home life. Just taking a moment out of your day cam
make all the difference, allowing you to re-focus and re-energise.

One of the great things about an aquarium screensaver is that it provides you with that sense of
escapism and tranquility for a nominal price. A home or office aquarium doesn’t come cheap. Then
there’s the upkeep and the added expense of populating it with fresh or seawater fish, before you
know where you are, you can spend a fortune!

Why bother with hassle and expense of buying an aquarium when you get the feeling from an
aquarium screensaver. Should you have a laptop or a tablet, you can also carry the feeling of
harmony wherever you go!

Better Quality Equals More Impactful

Our eyes are attracted to crisp imagery, imprinting what we see to our brains. In an age where we’re treated to a visual feast each time we turn on the television or start our laptop, poor resolution images are simply not as impactful.

4K aquarium screensavers mirror the standard of technology that are eyes are used to witnessing
every single day. The images they project are more than just images – they are an experience.

The ocean is also proven to enhance our sense of calm and clarity. The color blue is by far and away the favorite color of people across the world, invoking feelings of depth and happiness.

If you want to find a simple way to de-stress, enhance productivity or fill your home or office with
colour and creativity, an aquarium screensaver is a great way to do it.

The Perfect Time for Relaxing Videos is 20 Minutes

Here at Uscenes we produce high quality relaxation videos. Each one is 20 minutes in length.

Now that we have begun offering videos in 4K Ultra HD, the size can be 6GB. So we did a little digging to see if 20 minutes was the perfect length for a relaxation video…

Why You Should Stop Watching So Much TV

Replace TV Shows With Nature Videos

Uscenes was created by two guys who stopped watching TV around 10 years ago.

Then you have the adverts clogging up your brain with useless products.

What is Uscenes View on 4k Ultra HD Video

Update mid 2015: We now only film in Ultra HD 4K. We have a new category of 4K videos and the early favorite is a 4K aquarium. We expect our 4K fireplace to do well soon as winter and Christmas approaches. We still offer Full HD versions, but the growing market for UHD TV screens encouraged us to raise the bar. We will soon be releasing Ultra HD screensavers too, for those with screens like on the recently announced 4K iMac computer.

Here at Uscenes we are dedicated to creating high quality videos. The footage currently on this website is all full HD. This means it looks great on all current SMART TVs and HDTVs.

The next generation of televisions we are starting to see from manufacturers are being promoted as Ultra HD or 4K. This simply means the resolution is twice as wide.

In the image above you can see the differences, eventually we may even move up to 8K when we would use roll down screens the size of a wall. For now full HD is more than adequate for the size of TVs we use.

The SD in the image stands for Standard Definition. This is 720 x 480 pixels and was the resolution of our televisions up to around 10 years ago when HD started to become the new craze.  This is also the resolution for all DVDs. This is why we do not sell our videos on DVD, because the image would be poorer quality.

Most people currently have Full HD TVs which is 1080 x 1920. This is more than adequate for all our current screens. In fact many directors, cinematographers, videographers and other experts in the video and movie industry believe 4K is all sales hype. Many see it as as unnecessary step which manufacturers are using just to sell more television sets.

This recent CNET article makes a strong case against 4K, listing various reasons why we do not need it. The most obvious being shown in the below image which explains that we will not really benefit from 4K TVs unless they are 84 inches. Most of us sit close enough to our screens that we simply can’t tell the difference in resolution.

image credit Dennis Burger 

We will be filming our videos and screensavers in 4k

However, like I said earlier we are dedicated to top quality so we are not completely against 4K, Ultra HD. In fact we are going to be recording all future videos in 4K resolution.

After months of testing we have found time and time again that even the best full HD cameras cannot compare with the crispness and detail that a 4K camera can offer. We have been downscaling the 4K footage to 1080p to make these comparisons and the downscaled footage wins every time.

There are some 1080p cameras which can offer better “cinematic” footage, but we want detail. We want to make it look like your TV really is a fish tank, fireplace or window to a lovely scene from nature. Our emphasis is on replicating the scene as best as possible.

Filming in 4K and downscaling to 1080p is therefore our new specification for 2015. Next year we shall review how sales for 4K TVs have been going and if they are doing well we may begin offering 4K versions too. There is 4 times the amount of resolution in 4K video compared to Full HD, so files sizes will be larger, however a new video codec is on the way (h.265) which will mean smaller file sizes at some point next year.

So rest assured, you can trust Uscenes to provide you with the best quality relaxation videos and screensavers. If you wish to licence 4K footage for a commercial project, we are open to making custom videos (click here to enquire). But for home users downscaled 4k to 1080p Full HD is all you need for now.

We will probably be adding a single aquarium screensaver video soon in 4K, so stay tuned, but this may be the only one for quite some time. We just like the idea of having the first HD aquarium screensaver.

Cheapest Way To Get Videos to Loop on TV

We may of just found the cheapest possible way to get videos to loop on your TV. At £21.50 the Sumvision Micro 2 is a media player which comes with a remote control. It allows you to place a USB device inside like a USB memory stick or USB hard disk drive, or you can enter an SD card like you would use with cameras.

The device is available for $33 at the moment on Amazon.com although it looks like Sumvision have less of a presence in the States. However there are similarly priced alternatives such as the Micca Speck. Below is an image of this device. There are various similar ones to choose from.

These kinds of cheap media players will allow you to watch our relaxing videos continuously. Be sure to check that they have a repeat function before buying (they should all have this).

SMART TVs usually have their own media player but standard HDTVs and older TVs will need a device like the one you can see above in order to play downloaded videos continuously.

Another cheap option is a the Google Chromecast which plugs into the back of your TV’s usb port and HDMI port (so make sure you have these).

Finally you can go the premium route with a media streaming device like the Apple TV. This is a great option if you also want to access television services online.

Anyway, this post was about looping videos on your HDTV the cheap way. It seems that for around $40 this can easily be done. Now that we are offering our Full Collection in Full HD for just $67, you can have over 50 20 minute aquarium videos, fireplace videos and scenery videos looping on any TV you like for around $100.

Make Your TV Screen into an Aquarium

Don’t want the hassle and expense of a real aquarium in your home? This page will show you how to set a fish tank screensaver on your TV with real aquatic life.

There is currently no such thing as video screensavers for TV, if you are thinking along the lines of a traditional computer screensaver. Instead you need to set a video to loop (repeat) manually. Products like the Apple TV have screensavers which are just collections of images, or timelapses. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy aquarium video backgrounds on your HD TV or SMART TV. Read More

Aquarium Screensavers

We at Uscenes wanted to set up a site that gives the user a great selection of aquarium screensaver downloads for everyone to enjoy. There are so many fake aquariums on the net and it seems that they dominate the search results. Along with being completely unreal, they also have often come with a proviso that you have to install some kind of toolbar with ad ware in order to download them. I always get nervous when seeing these type of downloads as I have had my computer infected by them before. The novelty of these animated fish tanks soon wears off too as there is simply no substitute for real life fish and corals on your screen. Read More

Sleeping Videos And Relaxation Video Downloads

Many people use sleeping aids to help with insomnia. Audio books and hypnosis CD’s are the most common choice but have you ever considered using a video? Research has shown that visual stimulation can be just as effective as sound for relaxation and helping people get to sleep. Have you ever noticed how watching television can make your eyes tired and help you nod off? The only problem with most television and films is that their primary purpose is to entertain you and keep you watching. Read More

Windows Screensavers and Video Backgrounds

After all a video is simply a set of animated pictures so why not use videos as a great background for your windows screensavers. Read More

beach video screensaverFor the average city dweller, scenery videos can be a great way to get away from the hectic hustle and bustle of modern life. A scenery screensaver on your HD TV or computer screen can really help you to unwind. Let’s face it, most of us get home from work after an hour or maybe more on public transport, and if you drive to and from work it can be even more stressful. You wake up in the morning and are immediately surrounded by cars, concrete and fumes. So what chance do we really get to be in touch with nature and let our thoughts drift away? Read More

Beautiful Desktop Wallpapers

Great Places to Download Free Desktop Wallpapers

I used to download desktop wallpapers from National Geographic. However, that is no longer a magazine I support. Nowadays I use our own screensaver screenshots, or download images from social networks like Flickr, photography forums, Facebook etc… Be mindful that Facebook and others greatly reduce the quality of images, so looking for an image on a site like Flickr is going to give you higher quality images.

Music for Aquarium Videos

Great Music to Listen To With Aquarium Videos

Our aquarium videos have the sound of the tank, with gently bubbling water. This subtle soundtrack is ideal most of the time, but occasionally it is nice to listen to music to enhance the underwater mood. Below you will find a few tracks worth listening to, which sound great whilst enjoying one of our aquarium video-screensavers. I have included the Youtube clips so you can test them out for yourself before buying. The Brian Eno and Eric Serra tracks are both part of albums which are worth playing with your favourite aquarium video.

Where To Download HD Screensaver Videos For Your TV

It amazes me how slowly the TV screensaver market is moving. People are quite slow to catch on to the future, only Roku seems to offer a TV screensaver option. Screensavers are massively popular for computers and laptops, for example the word “screensaver” gets about 2 million searches per month on Google alone.

What people are slow to realise is that HD TV’s are becoming computers in their own rights. Most of the new Smart TVs have internet capabilities and it won’t be long before people are downloading and installing things right on their TV. Apple TV’s are also a fairly new way of playing media through your TV and there are a host of other media solutions like Kodi (XBMC), Roku and many more. These boxes are essentially computers connected to televisions to enable media to played on a your TV. They have easy user interfaces to allow control through a remote control to make the functionality easier than using a keyboard and mouse. Read More
